C# - How To Pull A Random And Unique Record From SQL Via LINQ

Apr 23, 2010

how to pull a RANDOM item from the database when using LINQ. There seems to be a couple of differnet ways to handle this. What I need to do though is pull a RANDOM item from the database that the user has not seen before.

The data I am pulling from the database is very small. Is there any way I can just hit the database once for 1000 records and then randomly scroll through those?

Should I put a cookie on the users system recording the IDs of which items they have seen, pull a random record, check to see if it is seen and if so, pull from the database again? That seems like performance issues just waiting to happen.

ADO.NET :: How To Build Dynamic Linq To SQL Queries

Nov 7, 2010

I'm trying to do something that on the face of it is very simple.

If I have 5 text boxes, and 1 of them is blank, I want to exclude that textbox from the query, rather than searching for where a field is blank.

I've tried to do a bit of research into dynamic linq queries, but have come up empty handed, or what I've found doesn't seem to quite answer my question.

Linq Query Returning Less Records Than Sql Query?

Mar 19, 2011

I am facing a big problem with simple linq query.. I am using EF 4.0..

I am trying to take all the records from a table using a linq query:

var result =>x);

This results in less rows than the normal sql query which is select * from tablename;

This table has more than 5 tables as child objects (foreign key relations: one to one and one to many etc)..

This result variable after executing that linq statement returns records with all child object values without doing a include statement.. I don't know is it a default behavior of EF 4.0 . I tried this statement in linqpad also..but there is no use... But interesting thing is if I do a join on the same table with another one table is working same is sql inner join and count is same..but I don't know why is it acting differently with that table only.. Is it doing inner joins with all child tables before returning the all records of that parent table?

Linq Query - How To Select Inner Query Into List

Oct 17, 2010

I am writing a linq query to select a blogpost,


The blogpost i am testing got 3 tags attached to it. The table structure is:

(table)BlogPost -> (table)BlogPostTags <- (table)Tags

So the BlogPostTags table only contains 2 fields, BlogPostID and TagID.

When i run the query above i get 3 results back. Same blogpost 3 times but with 1 tag in each. It should return 1 post with 3 tags. The problem lies in the Tags query above.

ADO.NET :: Not Sure How To Do This Query In Linq To Sql

Sep 12, 2010

I need to figure out how to express this in linq to sql:I have one or more records that contain what is essentially a wildcard sql parameter, like '100_-___-2', which should match 100[any 1 char]-[any 1 char][any 1 char][any 1 char]-2, for example. Each login will have one or more of these 'datamasks' associated with it.I need to write a query in linq to sql that does something like:

select * from something
where fieldA = 'someValue' or fieldB = 'someValue'

so far, simple, but I also need to restrict the returned records to only those that match the user's 'datamasks'. I'm not sure exactly how to translate this to linq to sql... here is what a working query *without* the datamasks part looks like:


I need to tack on the datamasks part... can I do it right there in the same statement? or do I need to do a foreach loop on the datamasks records and append a new && condition for each one? hmmm... just thought of that as I was writing this.. I'll try that out. But I'm posting this anyway for more input... I guess that would look something like:

foreach (string mask in datamasks)
query = query.Where(item =>
System.Data.Linq.SqlClient.SqlMethods.Like(item.AccountNum, mask));

would that work? would each additional 'where' condition be 'appended' to the existing query definition?

Possible To Do A Linq Query On A GridView ?

C# - Test If Linq Query Went Through?

Mar 15, 2011

This is my code from my controller:

MGEntities db = new MGEntities();
public ActionResult Register(RegisterModel model)
if (ModelState.IsValid)
// Attempt to register the user
MembershipCreateStatus createStatus = MembershipService.CreateUser(model.UserName, model.Password, model.Email);
if (createStatus == MembershipCreateStatus.Success)
FormsService.SignIn(model.UserName, false /* createPersistentCookie */);
MembershipUser myObject = Membership.GetUser();
Guid UserID = (Guid)myObject.ProviderUserKey;
MyProfile profile = new MyProfile();
profile.Address = model.Address;
profile.City = model.City;
profile.Zip = model.Zip;
profile.State = model.State;
profile.UserId = UserID;
return RedirectToAction("Index", "Home");
ModelState.AddModelError("", AccountValidation.ErrorCodeToString(createStatus));

This is my MyProfile Class:

namespace MatchGaming.Models
[Bind(Exclude = "ProfileId")]
public class MyProfile
public int ProfileId { get; set; }
public Guid UserId { get; set; }
public string Address { get; set; }
public string City { get; set; }
public string Zip { get; set; }
public string State { get; set; }

After the linq query is executed, i check my database and nothing is added. I am using POCO for my entities. Here is my class:

namespace MatchGaming.Models
public class MGEntities : DbContext
public DbSet<MyProfile> aspnet_Profiles { get; set; }

C# - Get The Sql Created By A Linq Query?

Jan 18, 2010

I've been developing a ASP.NET page and have been using LINQ to handle talking to MS SQL server. I'm ok at basic SQL, however I'm a lot better with designing queries using LINQ. I know they are similar but I find it easer to design complex queries in LINQ. My question is this: Is there a way to design a query in LINQ and then get the SQL that it generated? I would like to embed the SQL in a stored procedure since multiple pages (outside my control) will need to do the same query.

ADO.NET :: Linq Query With Ordering?

Jan 28, 2011

the best way to do the following (I'm using a simplified example of my actual problem?Say I have a customer ordered items table with fields: oItemId, OrderId, ProductId, ItemPriceI want to query where OrderId >oMin && OrderId <oMaxand for each value of OrderId I want to find the record with the highest ItemPriceso for a single OrderId the query would be:(from o in context.orderItems where OrderId==x orderby o.ItemPrice select o).first()but OrderId isn't a single value. If I modify the where clause then this query would still produce a single record whereas I want a single record per OrderId.oh and as an additional question: does anyone have a compact test for whether a record exists. I am using the querystring to specify an Id and there are numerous things that I want to protect against. If I do:

var myRecord = from o in context.orders where o.orderId == request.querystring["Order"] select othen this fails if the querystring isn't specified. So first I test that the querystring != nul . Then I need to do:bool recordExists = (myRecord != null)because even if the querystring is specified it may be an invalid orderId and thus the query returns no results. Is there a shorter/simpler way to calculate the result. I have not yet got to grips with lambda expressions and I'm not sure whether there is a better approach with lambda expressions.
